Hour 19. Using Blocks

What You’ll Learn in This Hour:

• Understand the Basics of Using Blocks

• Create Blocks

• Place Blocks on Your Pages

Introduction

This hour explores a major component of Drupal—the blocks that can appear in various regions of your site’s pages. Figure 19.1 shows part of the front page of the author’s site (northcountryconsulting.com). Nothing about it indicates that it is a Drupal site. In fact, the layout of the page could be created with any number of sitebuilding tools, including hand-crafted HTML.
